BRADFORD'S Peace Museum has loaned a banner from its collection to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

The Greenham Common Women’s Peace Group banner, made by Thalia Campbell, will be part of the V&A's Disobedient Objects exhibition which runs until next February.

The banner was used at a protest at nuclear weapons being sited at RAF Greenham Common in Berkshire in 1981. It lasted eight months, during which time 34 women were arrested.

It is part of the Museum's collection of protest banners.
